Telling its stories, a place becomes part of those stories. The legend takes on a life beyond the place and becomes timeless.The origins of the village are lost in the history of medieval Tuscany and the famous people who established the reputation of the region. Every alley, every stone speaks of a time that once was, of flavours and scents that recall the memory of a rare and more authentic Tuscany.Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, in the shadow of the cypress trees of the ancient Via dei Sette Ponti, (an area rich in art and culture between the three main cities of Tuscany Florence, Arezzo and Siena), this village is an open window on history, a fresco to a far away world. The Medici dynasty, the Savoia family and now the Ferragamo family have safeguarded and preserved this precious oasis, making this place, suspended between the past and the present, a sanctuary dedicated to well-being and the art of hospitality.
In this medieval village, a Relais & Châteaux nestles in the picturesque Tuscan countryside. This place offers charm and hospitality totally orientated to the needs of guests. An astonishing variety of activities and indulgences to suit the most discerning of palettes. With rooms which are an elegant portrait of the classic Tuscan style. Subjected to meticulous restoration, the original features have been retained whilst enriching them with all the most modern comforts. Stay in the historical villas or in one of the suites in the village and enjoy the unique culture. Or experience your stay in one of the the farmhouses, which are a different way to experience this beautiful place. Surrounded by orchards and gardens, lovingly restored in traditional style and materials, these structures blend functionality and comfort and offer a unique experience. Let yourself be swept in to a landscape populated by olive groves, vineyards and traditional rural farmhouses and soak in the atmosphere of Tuscany. All the Farmhouses are located in the countryside surrounding the medieval village; it is recommended that you have your own car.
